This special summer course for students aged 13 to 15 combines Spanish study with a holiday in the historical university city of Salamanca. Spanish lessons in small classes are combined with activities and excursions to provide students with the opportunity to experience a new culture and make international friends.
During the 3 hour daily classes, students study and practice all aspects of the Spanish language: grammar, composition, vocabulary and, most of all, conversation. Students receive a diploma at the end of the course.
Accommodation and food are a very important part of the Spanish experience. Our families are carefully selected and each one has been visited. Two students share a room. Some families have children of their own and students take part in family life. The families live near the school - 10 to 20 minutes on foot .
All three main meals are included. Students receive a packed lunch with sandwiches and fruit on excursion or pool days. Estudio Sampere ensures that the meals are healthy and balanced. It is essential to note any special dietary requirements on the registration form.
In July and August, students can also chose to stay in a residence instead of with a host family. It offers double rooms (max 40 students), with buffet-style full board and laundry facilities. In the residence, two computers for the students and wi-fi (wireless) connection are also available.
The Junior Course includes cultural lessons, sports and many other activities at no extra cost. A different activity is planned for each day except Sunday, including: visits to museums, group events, a day at the swimming pool and excursions and field trips outside Salamanca.
Meeting young people from other countries is a rewarding part of the program, broadening the students' view of the world. The activities allow and encourage these contacts. All activities are supervised by Estudio Sampere personnel.
